Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

News!!! @ 07:16 pm

Yes, I am alive. I may be fighting for my life in the way of being in proximity of the flu virus when I went to visit Holly this weekend, but I am alive. I am also, officially, engaged. Yes, that's right, I'm one step closer to being eternally connected to the love of my life. I'm both excited relieved. Excited because I'm engaged to a really amazing girl, and relieved that I was able to plan a reasonably neat way to propose. Suffice it to say that since I last wrote after going to Knoxville the first time, I've been either sick with a cold, planning my proposal (remind me to NEVER plan one of those again), or just not feeling like writing.

I also don't want to trivilize my amazing experience ... I probably won't surprise Holly like I did last Friday night for a long while, but tonight for some reason I don't feel inspired to write a full description. I suppose it could be the residuals of the virus trying to get me ... it also could be the fact that I never seem to get enough sleep when I go and visit her and I'm still suffering from zombie syndrome. That being said, I just wanted to write a quick post to tell everyone that reads this thing about my news, and also make a promise to myself that I'll write down the full details before they disappear with time.

For now though, I think I should eat some dinner, take my flu medicine, and go to bed. I'm using the power of positive thinking to convince myself not to get it, that and Tamiflu, and I think ... no I know that it's working. I don't have a fever, I'm not coughing, and all the symptoms that I'm feeling is just being tired. I should have time to recount the story of the proposal, our audience, and the ring. It's not a glamorous story, but I think it's unique. More soon.

I'll definitely write about it. I'm kind of glad I'm now not in Idol. I don't think I could have enough energy to do it. I haven't even paid much attention to it lately. Oh well ... at least I'm writing a bit. I really need to be consistent with my writings contest or no. *going back to using my energies in posistive restive ways* Thanks so much.

Congrats! And here you were telling me that no one would love an "old crusty" guy like you. Lol, time definitely changes things. :)

I know. I just happened to find someone "really old (26)" who wasn't married yet, and was cool all at the same time. Who would have thought eh?

I haven't heard from you in forever! I'll write about it soon when I'm feeling more energetic and creatively inspired for sure. Hope you're doing well.

Hey, Congratulations! Will be interested to hear more of the story when you feel better. And don't get the flu. I've had it and it sucks big time. I'm only just now getting back to normal, but I still have a stupid cough thing.

I don't know if I even had it, but I stayed home from seeing my sister and Romey just in case. I think that the tamiflu did its thing because Holly's got the flu bad. Thanks for the congrats.

I'll keep posting for sure, even if it's spotty at most. You keep posting yourself.

Congratulations! I'm so happy to hear about your engagement! I'm not, however, happy to hear you've been feeling so sick. I will pray that you feel better soon.

I'm glad I feel better now. At least I wasn't puking or something and just felt tired. Thanks so much for the comment.

I think I partially escaped it. At least I feel normal now, at least as normal as possible now :). Thanks for the message, and for being my new friend.

Oh, my gosh, congratulations! Félicitations, as they say over here! That's so great!

Sorry to hear you're sick. Take care of yourself, stay warm, drink plenty of fluids, have some chicken soup, etcetera!

Thanks so much. I'm glad I feel better now, but I did stay home today to keep the baby from having any possible exposure to the thing. Thanks so much for your well-wishes.
